About FC St.Gallen

Football Club St. Gallen 1879 is a Swiss association football club based in St. Gallen. The club is currently playing in the 2011/12 Swiss Challenge League.

Brief history

Having been founded on 19 April 1879, FC St. Gallen are the oldest still existing club in Swiss football. However, the team has had relatively little success in comparison to other clubs. Despite the fact that St. Gallen won the Swiss championship twice in the 1903–04 in Swiss football and 1999–2000 Swiss Football League, the team has mostly been a mid-table side. During the last decade, the strength of the club continually declined and this eventually resulted in the transformation to a yo-yo club. St. Gallen were relegated to the second-tier Swiss Challenge League twice at the end of the 2007–08 Swiss Super League and the 2010–11 Swiss Super League.

Stadium

FC St. Gallen play their home games at the AFG Arena. The stadium has a capacity of 20,300 and it is on the west side of town. The stadium replaced the former Espenmoos stadium in the east.

Supporters

The main supporters of FC St. Gallen are called Green Power. The group is one of the largest of its kind in Switzerland. They are referred to as "the Sausage Munchers" by opposition fans as St. Gallen is famous for its bratwurst.
